Affiliate marketing platform ShopMy, which works with creators like Gucci Westman and Olivia Palermo, has closed $8 million in Series A funding.

WHO: ShopMy, formerly known as ShopMy Shelf, was founded in 2020 by a trio of technologists from MIT and Harvard—Chris Tinsley, Harry Rein, and Tiffany Lopinsky. The platform offers trusted content creators the ability to seamlessly showcase, organize, and monetize their product recommendations and simultaneously allows brands to manage and scale their influencer ambassador programs via gifting, affiliates, and paid collaborations.

Rand Currier, investor: "ShopMy's technology offers much-needed simplification in an increasingly complex and expanding social media landscape by allowing content creators to focus on what they do best and helping brands find the best ambassadors for them. This is all possible thanks to ShopMy's robust analytics, talent discovery search and intelligent matching systems which are helping shape the future of the creator economy."
